Date:8/25/2011

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., Aug. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Emmy® and Tony® award-winning actress Blythe Danner and Amgen (NASDAQ: AMGN) today launch Act 2 Reduce Fractures™, an educational campaign for women with postmenopausal osteoporosis at increased risk for fractures. Earlier this year, Danner was diagnosed with postmenopausal osteoporosis at increased risk for fractures and wants to encourage women like her to educate themselves, take action and speak to their doctors to learn all they can about helping to strengthen their bones. The campaign is being supported by American Bone Health, the Global Healthy Living Foundation and the Older Women's League.

"When I was diagnosed with postmenopausal osteoporosis at increased risk for fractures, I started to worry about how breaking a bone could impact my ability to do the things that are most important to me such as continuing to act, being a mother to my children and even more importantly, being an active grandmother," said Danner. "So I've been working with my doctor on a plan to help strengthen my bones, and I hope my participation in this campaign will motivate women like me to do the same."

Postmenopausal osteoporosis is a silent disease, and it usually has no symptoms until a fracture happens, which can be a life-changing event. There are medical and lifestyle factors that can place a woman with postmenopausal osteoporosis at an increased risk for fractures. A list of these factors can be found at www.Act2ReduceFractures.com.
